                                       FALL FESTIVAL!
September 18 & 19

Think about what you can do for our Fall Festival. Here are some ideas of what can be done now:

FALL FESTIVAL RAFFLE TICKETS - Buy and/or sell them. We have extras at the Rectory.

FLEA MARKET - Bring items to the garages behind the Rectory Monday thru Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. No TV's, large furniture or clothing.

FANCY BOOTH - Crochet, knit, carve, paint, holiday ornaments, dish towels, etc.

MYSTERY GIFTS - Start collecting (searching) for donations of "mystery" gifts for people of all ages. Useable items only please. Bring to the Rectory.

BOTTLEMANIA - Any item in a bottle. It has been suggested that "Bottlemania" also contain something that would be of interest to children. Anything that fits in a bottle will be acceptable - even a variety of related items in a large plastic container. Bring them during the week to the Rectory.

VOLUNTEER - We always need lots of volunteers. Think of where you would like to volunteer your time to work by calling the Rectory weekdays. See the notice at the bottom of this page.

ARTS AND CRAFTS - Design a theme basket. Pick a theme - Birthday Party, the color purple, Snack time, etc. - and fill a basket with items relating to your theme.

Call the Rectory weekdays 612-789-7238.
